Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest) is on the world's rooftop, with a peak of 8,848.86 meters (29,029 feet) above sea level. It is located in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas, in the Khumbu region of Nepal, on the northern border with Tibet. Mt. Everest is also known as Sagarmatha in Nepal, Chomolungma in Tibet, and Zhumulangma Feng in China. Its massif includes neighboring peaks: Lhotse at 8,516 m (27,940 ft), Nuptse at 7,855 m (25,771 ft), and Changtse at 7,580 m (24,870 ft). Mt. Everest as the highest peak was identified by an employee, Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India, in 1852. And in 1865, Everest was given its official English name by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh. Waugh named the mountain after his predecessor in the post, Sir George Everest. On May 29, 1953, Tensing Norgay of Nepal and Edmund Hillary of New Zealand first ascended Mt. Everest. Since 1953, more than a thousand climbers have climbed Everest, and among them, Apa Sherpa has ascended the peak 21 times.

In the Everest region Due to changes in altitude, the region offers diversity in flora and fauna. In lower altitudes, birch, juniper, blue pines, firs, bamboo, and rhododendron are major vegetation types. At higher elevations, all vegetation is dwarf trees and shrubs. As the altitude increases, plant life is restricted to lichens and mosses. Sagarmatha National Park is home to more than 118 species of birds, including the Himalayan monal, the blood pheasant, the red-billed chough, and the yellow-billed chough. A number of rare mammal species, including Musk Deer, Snow Leopard, Himalayan Black Bear, and Red Panda, can also be found in this park. Himalayan thars, Langur monkeys, martens, Himalayan wolves, and many others

The majestic mountains, high mountain valleys, isolated monasteries, the innate hospitality of the local people, and the smiling faces of the sherpas are some of the major attractions of the Everest region. Everest is regarded as the home of the Sherpas and is renowned for their good humor, strength, endurance, and mountaineering skills. Everest Base Camp (EBC) is popularly known for trekking, mountaineering, and peak climbing. It is one of the world’s best treks. The 16 days of trekking to EBC will take you to the breathtaking high mountain sceneries, magnificent landscapes, tapering ridges, and colorful villages that contribute to making this trek an unforgettable experience.
